    Ok basically here is my issue. I set my expose and dashboard keys to keys on my keyboard and mouse and they usually stay for about 1-2 hours. When i come back they are all set to - under the system preferences. Any ideas for getting this to stick so i don't have to keep remapping them?


    Edit: I think it may be an issue with WoW because of the post here http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=2766148150&postId=27656698496&sid=1#2
    would still appreciate an insight on this matter

    I've been having the same problem, and I don't have WoW. It was literally working just 5 minutes ago, then suddenly it was gone again. I haven't been doing anything out of the ordinary at all. It sticks longer than 1-2 hours for me though, but still, every so often it resets to "-" and I have to go back in preferences to change it back. I remember it happening in 10.5.1 and it's still happening now in 10.5.2

    There is an Apple script on that page that will reset the settings to their defaults when run. I use it whenever WoW decides to overwrite my Expose settings.

    That still doesn't explain my problem since I don't play WoW. As far as I can remember, I didn't open any programs that I don't normally open every day without my preferences being overwritten.
